Outdoor movie screening on Saturday for National HIV Testing Day

Sounds like a good event:
Five local churches and five AIDS service organizations are coming together to put on an event to commemorate National HIV Testing Day.

1 in 20 people in DC is living with HIV. How can we help end this epidemic?

This event is an Outdoor Movie Screening of "The Other City" - a powerful documentary about the HIV epidemic here in DC.

If you have yet to see it or want to encourage your friends/family to learn more about HIV in DC, come see this film.

Details:
 What: Outdoor Screening of "The Other City"
When: Saturday, June 25th; Field opens at 8PM; movie starts at sundown
Where: Harriet Tubman Elementary School Field; 3101 13th St. NW (across from Wonderland)
Other Deets: Free HIV testing and music before the film
Why: Because we want to build relationships with one another around this very important social justice issue.

I hope people take advantage and get tested. Knowing your status and your partner's status can help prevent new infections. But we are still in need of a cure for the millions currently living with HIV. Please support re:solve AIDS. The re:solve AIDS project is raising money to get a promising AIDS vaccine through human testing so that it can be produced and made available to everyone who needs it. http://bit.ly/e4ehI7
